A chat I had with Jan Wilton about her puppies, She said as she was going to test a group of Kcgc, a group of various breeds of all sizes she took her puppy too ,good chance to socialize  Mach 13 weeks mingled too, when a gsd a big fluffy dog approached he stood up as a vall does did a shake and bounced up to her. Think he thought she was a hairy vallhund. So what does one do on a bank holiday Mach and humans went to the pub, written by Mach " I had lots of cuddles with Aunty Sharon and then I found the Stella, it was a big drink for a very small puppy and I may of drunk too much and had  to go for an afternoon nap, don’t we all Meddobe Mach 1, this had a set of photos on his pup visit very cute fun .

  To finish a perfect day with both shows having  good entries,  driving home in daylight.
